Arsenal Man Utd and Tottenham are among the clubs battling to sign Everton midfielder Ross Barkley who is set to leave Goodison Park this summer.
Barkley has spent his entire career at Everton and progressed through the ranks to emerge to secure regular first-team football since 2012.
The 23-year-old scored six goals last season setting up another 9 for his team mates, but Barkley’s future at Goodison Park now remains up in the air, after England international star refused to extend his current deal with the Merseyside Blues, Koeman made it clear that he is keen on to get rid of him.
Understandably, the England international star has been on the radars of Arsenal, Man Utd and Tottenham Hotspur, while Chelsea and West Ham United are also closing in on a deal for his signature.
According to the newspaper reports, Tottenham Hotspur are favourites to sign Barkley as they are preparing £30m bid for his signature, however, Everton initially demanding £50m for the 23-year-old playmaker.
However, Arsenal and Manchester United are planning a late bid for Spurs no.1 transfer target in order to strengthen their midfield options.
